Artastic Wednesday: Hey! Listen! Edition

NOTE:  Today’s art show is NSFW due to nude fairies.

With GenCon across the weekend and two days of entertaining guests following in its wake, I once again have to cop out of my normal Wednesday riff.  Sorry about that.

So, en lieu of an actual riff, I decided I’d dig up some Navi fanart in honor of Sexi!Navi.  Let’s check it out!

Art-tastic Saturday! – Etrian Odyssey Stuff (or, “SC is a Lazy Bitch”)

Howdy, folks!

So, as the title very clearly indicates, I procrastinated like a fool, and my riff wound up not getting finished on time.

…So here, have some pictures as a half-hearted apology for it!

Firstly, from Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl, DeviantART user Ritzueli gives us a look at the Story Mode party:

Counter-clockwise: Arthur the Alchemist, Raquna the Protector, The Highlander the… uh… Highlander, Simon the Medic, and Frederica, the titular Millennium Girl.

Etrian Odyssey 2: Heroes of Lagaard gives us a very bored Gunner gal having herself a tea, seemingly unaware that she’s about to be slaughtered by butterflies and a mole (no, really, that’s what that pink-and-purple thing in the corner is):


DeviantART user thejabawack introduces us to their guild, “Scoobs,” from Etrian Odyssey 3: The Drowned City:

In order from left to right: Zodiac, Princess, Monk, Gladiator and Hoplite.

Over in Etrian Odyssey 4: Legends of the Titan, it would appear that one of the Landsknechts got into a bit of a shouting match with Chrom from Fire Emblem: Awakening, and things have gotten a bit out of hand:

Oh my.

And finally, in Etrian Odyssey 5: Beyond the Myth, DeviantART user Kuerag shows us a guild of adventurers taking a quick lunch break:

In order from left to right: Dragoon, Warlock, Rover, Herbalist, and Masurao.

Have a good weekend, everybody!

Artastic Wednesday: Sexy Ganon Edition

Hey, patrons!  So, teh influenzaz finally finished moving its way through the Taco clan and during the weekend landed up my facular region.  So, instead of writing a riff for you all this week, I’ve been hanging out in my blanket fortress trying to figure out which of the dancing pickles on my pillow are real and which are fever delusions.   I haven’t quite figured that one out yet, but that singing one on the far right is probably real.


Anyway, since the Sexy Santa Bear fanart has been among the most popular searches that’s lead people to our little corner of the interwebs (Some very confused and dissapointed people hoping for a gallery of Sexy Santa Bear), I decided to up the game with some sexy Ganondorf for you all!  I am so, so sorry.

Needless to say that behind the break is some NSFW content.

Artastic Wednesday – Star Wars

Hey, patrons!  Sorry for the cop-out post this week, but things have been very… vomit-y in the Taco household this past week.  Fortunately I have not yet been afflicted by the 48-hour barfing bug that’s been working it’s way through my family one-by-one, but I figure it’s only a matter of time.  Unfortunately, with everyone else in the house taking turns puking at night, I’ve not been getting much sleep over the last week, so I’m running pretty low on energy to devote to riffing.  I could have forced myself to put something out there, but it would probably suck more than normal and I’d rather take a breather and return next week with more energy for the riffing (providing the unrelenting tide of vomit subsides by then, of course).

En Lieu of a real post, here’s some Star Wars fanart to gaze at for the next thirty seconds!

Art-tastic Saturday! – Overwatch Winter Wonderland

Heyo, people! SC, here. Sorry that I’m posting so late in the day, and that it’s not a riff, but I was trying to do a Christmas oneshot that just wasn’t happening for me, and I wound up deleting it because I finally realized that I was wasting my time on a fic that, realistically, didn’t deserve riffing in the first place. Yes, it was bad, but it wasn’t riffably bad.

Unfortunately, it would have been the Library’s second ever Dragon Age fic, because I’ve been kinda enamored with the series lately (as if my Facebook posts couldn’t clue you in on that), and I feel like it’s a crying shame that we have half a million Mass Effect fics, and therefore have the intricacies of that series almost completely pinned down… and over in the Dragon Age corner, we have Gabriel Hawke. Dragon Age and Mass Effect are almost equal in size, as two of Bioware’s biggest IPs, so I was hoping I could do my part to start evening out the scales a bit.

So, you know, that kinda pisses me off.

Well, Ghostie told me that I could always just toss up some holiday pictures, and since I’m riffing an Overwatch fic, and Blizzard had a holiday-themed event last year (and are in the midst of one right now), why not have some Overwatch Christmas fun?

Mostly just Christmas, though. I guess Blizzard wasn’t sure how to properly represent all the winter holidays of each hero’s respective culture or something. I don’t blame them, that’s probably a lot of holidays to encompass into one game.


Clockwise: Lucio, Tracer, Torbjorn, and Mei. Out the window: McCree.

Art-tastic Saturday! – Some Overwatch fanart, and no, SC’s ass is not on fire.

Hey, people! It’s ya boi SC! No riff from me this week, because I couldn’t finish it in time, but I wanted to post something anyhow to let you know that I’m alright.

For anybody not in the know, I live in Northern California, and Northern California currently lives in hell – by which I mean, EVERYTHING’S ON FUCKING FIRE. The situation is, some freaky-ass winds knocked over trees that fell onto power lines, which started the fires nearest to me; meanwhile, a bit south of us, some fuckass arsonists went around lighting up a bunch of other fires. The result wound up being twenty-one wildfires igniting all in the same day, and it’s been absolute chaos up here ever since, trying to get them fought.

Unfortunately, I wound up having to be evacuated from my home on the first day (we got given the order to leave at about one in the morning, and you could see an ominous red glow creeping over the hill just across the way, that’s how close it was to me), so I’ve been spending about the last week waiting on pins and needles for the situation to turn around enough for me to try and get back to my normal day-to-day, hence the lack of a riff. I’m back home now, and things appear to be turning around for the better. Now, keep in mind, the situation is far from handled – even with so many resources pouring in from places as far-flung as Australia, the fire nearest to me is only 20% contained, and has already claimed over 34,000 acres of land. If the winds come back and blow the fire south, I’ll probably have to evacuate again. But, for the time being, all’s good with me, and you can trust that if I do have to fuck off to Nopetopia again, I’ll probably have enough advance warning to get out with my family and pets safely.

So, with that out of the way, I can’t just leave you guys without at least a nice picture to look at – so have some Overwatch fanart! The creator is credited in the image, proper, so go give her gallery a look if you feel so inclined.

Artastic Wednesday

Hey, patrons!  Sorry about the lack of riff today, I’m going to a convention and between planning, packing, and getting all my work squared away so things don’t blow up while I’m gone, I just ran out of time to do anything for today.

But, fear not, I’ve dived into our massive pile of fanart to bring you something truly special!  I give you Albert Wesker as he was always meant to be seen.
